Many actuarial sciences students take actuarial exams during their time at WPI. WPI actuarial faculty provide many exam study resources for these students, however they expressed the need for an online exam study tool. The purpose of this project is to begin the process of creating such an online resource in the form of a database of WeBWorK question sets, as well as a Canvas site. I created a pilot resource for the FM exam, one of the first actuarial exams students typically take. The database of WeBWorK questions can also be used to support the WPI Theory of Interest courses (MA 2211 and MA 2212). I also created a guide documenting how to use WeBWorK, in order to ease the process of creating similar resources for other exams.
